I would highly recommend staying here. The communication from the hosts was excellent before our stay and whilst we were there, they dropped in to check everything was okay but apart from that we didn't really need them. The airport transfer that they organised for us was perfect, much easier than organising it ourselves. Mr Alves was on time, friendly and knowledgeable. The neighbourhood is very quiet and residential and is just a short walk from the town centre. It is very hilly there so if you are not fit you may want to get the bus which stops right outside the apartment. The apartment itself was very clean, well laid out, and decorated nicely. The kitchen had all the equipment you would need for a weeks holiday and a lovely area outside to have meals in the sunshine. The private pool was small but good for cooling off in the summer heat. The larger shared pool was better for swimming in. The whole place was very quiet and we never felt that we were sharing with anyone as there is lots of space in the gardens for all the apartments. The local bakery, which is just five minutes walk is well worth a visit, it has lots of lovely cakes and delicious bread's and there is a convenience store that sells almost everything you need, right next door. All in all the rose apartment was a lovely place to have a romantic holiday on a beautiful island and the hosts were helpful but never intrusive.

Helena and Roberto have been really caring and obliging hosts. We even had a welcome present with some friuts, a fresh baken cake, a bottle of wine and some cookies. Both our Apartment and the whole estate were simply amazing. The garden and the are arranged perfectly, Elena and Roberto took care for the garden every other day. And I must not forget the wonderful view to the Bay of Funchal from the upper terrace, you simply have to see it by your own. We will visit Helena again for sure, Quinta Esperanca is highly recommended by us. Matthias and Angelika

We were greeted by Roberto on arrival and, due to the time that we arrived, it was much appreciated to find enough provisions for a light supper waiting for us. This was our second visit to Rose apartment. We were drawn back by Helena and Roberto being such helpful, friendly and informative hosts & the location and condition of the apartment. Rose apartment is one of five apartments in the same wonderful old building which is set in spacious grounds and gardens. There is a communal pool but Rose apartment also has its own private pool. It is well equipped and was very clean and tidy. Located away from the town centre of Funchal it is quiet and peaceful and as enclosed property feels very secluded. It is not a long walk down to the town but it is relatively steep. There is some traffic noise but to be fair I'm sure that the regular buses up from the sea front are appreciated by many visitors after a long day of sightseeing or shopping.

A tranquil lovely old period hotel converted into five apartments. We were based in the rearmost one with a private plunge pool attached, as well as access to the main swimming pool. Roberto and Helena are delightful hosts and always quick to assist and give advice if required. The location is about a 15 mins walk down hill into town, or a 5 min bus (31 & 31A) ride back up. A taxi is around 5 Euros from the old town. Roberto has been renovating and repairing some of the inner rooms of the building over the last few years and you can see the close attention he puts into the rooms while he does so. One of the best aspects is the communal terrace up the wrought iron staircase. Superb views make it an ideal place for a beer or glass of wine while the sun goes down. There is also a truly excellent,, (and remarkably cheap!) bakery 5mins walk around the with some of the best rolls etc we have had in a long time. Much better than some of our local bakeries in London at any rate! We were there for 8 days and loved it. For 5 days we were by ourselves but when other guests arrived there was still loads of natural space in the gardens and pool area for folk to relax in. Should we find ourselves back in Madeira, we would definitely try and book it again. Many thanks

Best Place to stay at Madeira! Helena and Roberto are great hosts! After one week we stayed in another apartment we have booked the pool apartment for the second week. Helena and Roberto were so kind to move all our luggage and fridge things etc. to the new apartment while we should discover the island. The apartment was exactly like described and decorated with love and we felt like home the minute we entered it. Equipped with everything you'll need like towels, extra pool towels, bathrobes, hair dryer, pans, dishes, oil, salt, pepper, extra blankets (for outside or the couch or if your cold), Toaster, Coffee maker, several maps and books of Madeira.... The kitchen is a little bigger than in the other apartments and is located in a small extra room and also contains a dish washer and an oven! The double bed is a little smaller than the kingsize beds in the other apartments but we slept very well that week as it was comfotable. The living room also offers a TV (like in all other apartments) and a DVD player - but we never used it.;-) The apartment has an own terrace with table and chairs in a very private corner of the house next to the small private garden part with the private (and well-groomed) pool. You will also find several cute and lovely decorated places to "chill out" everywhere in the garden. The common terrace on the second floor offers a breathtaking view over the city and the harbour, the common pool is also well-groomed. There are 5 apartments in the house but the maximum of 10 guests at the house seldom meet eachother - only if the want to, as there are so many places in the garden and the common terrace that you will find your private corner whenever you want to. Just 5 minutes to walk around the corner you will find a small bakery where you can also have your breakfast as well as a small supermarket and a butcher. Enough parking lots are available right in front of the house where you will also find a bus stop. To the Old Town we walked 10 minutes and you will find lots of restaurants to have dinner at. For us it was the perfect place to be at Madeira as we loved to have a barbeque in the evening in our "own" quite garden and on the other hand be close to the city if we want to go out. The apartment is more than big enough for a couple and we loved the caring design. Helena and Roberto are the best hosts we had and we will definitly come back!!! Thank you for the charming welcome, the way you cared about us and all the love you put into renovating the house!

This cosy appartment is just perfect. Everything was very clean and as beautiful as in the pictures. It provided us everything we needed and it was really a pleasure to come back after a long journey of walking up and down. The appartment is part of a charming, huge Quinta completely renovated. Even though we had our own swimming pool, we also enjoyed going to the bigger pool shared with the rest of guests. The Quinta is full of plants, trees and places to hide... so it offers a magnificent environment to relax (the gorgeous terrace on the 1st floor is not to be missed!). Helena and Roberto were both really nice and attentive. They were also accomodating about arrival and departure times and gave us lots of tips about the area, places to visit, etc. The bakery Roberto told us about became our favourite place to start the journey: very cheap and really good bolos do caco (typical little breads). In summary, we highly recommend the Quinta Esperança, the perfect base to discover Funchal and the rest of Madeira !

We spent 10 days in the very pretty, romantic and secluded cottage attached to the main house of this listing. It could not have been more central to exploring Funchal and the surrounding areas, but also of experiencing living within the local community. The views and setting are beautiful and Helena and her team are so friendly, helpful and supportive. The grounds and pool are lovely, and we had use of the new plunge pool in our own private garden area - our son loved this! The accommodation is well stocked for two but we found it a little tight for space with our 6ft, 15 year old son sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge - but it was fine and worked out well. Funchal is less than 10 minutes walk downhill - but prepare for a longer walk back up! Cabs are very cheap and quick and we eventually succumbed to some help back home some evenings to save wear and tear on our leg muscles! We did not hire a car as we could get to everywhere we wanted to go to on the island from Funchal. We shall certainly be returning to this accommodation again. I cannot recommend it highly enough if you like to be away from the bustle but near enough to access everything the island has to offer. Thank you Helena and your team, hope to see you again soon.
